DC The Enforcer

The fight maintained an MMA theme throughout, with the commentators using references and terminology from the sport while calling the action.

Both wrestlers shoved Cormier aside during the match, with DC correcting them both sternly and warning them not to touch him (including pressing Rollins against the cage while doing so).

Ultimately, it was Matt Riddle who emerged from the Fight Pit victorious after making Rollins tap out to a triangle choke. Cormier did not come to blows with either of the wrestlers, and the bout concluded cleanly, with the ex-UFC fighter getting his hand raised by a UFC Hall of Famer.
